The Recent British Proposals on Asylum Policy: A Critical Evaluation
The Recent British Proposals on Asylum Policy: A Critical Evaluation. The UK has sought to take a bold lead in Europe with its proposals for new international approaches to asylum processing and protection. The approaches have two strands: first, the establishment of ?transit processing centres? (TPCs) in third countries, close to the external border of the European Union, to which those arriving in EU Member States, and claiming asylum, could be transferred to have their claims processed. Second, the establishment of ?regional protection areas? (RPAs) close to refugee-producing countries for those fleeing conflicts or natural disasters. By Anneliese Baldacini to the Cicero Foundation.
